"Joan, Dan, Jerry, Kathy, Tom, Pat, Beth & families,
So sad to see another Brune Brother pass away so quickly. Those four Brune Boys are probably enjoying a heavenly beer fest right now. Take time to mourn and remember the summer swimming fun we had as kids at the pool and Lake House. Thanks to Uncle Fritz & Aunt Joan for making us all feel welcome in their home.
Our sympathy to all of you,
Diane (Brune) Plassmeyer, Chip & family"
